in this country to strengthen middle class families? that's how our country, our economy is strongest when a thriving, rising middle class is the engine for growth in this country. that's exactly what we want to do. when you look at sequester the impact on middle class families, what's it going to be, teachers in schools, 13,000 schools -- 13,000 teachers are going to be hit, 6,000 schools. if you look at mental health, if you look at food inspections and you've already heard the devastating list of horribles that the pentagon has said are going to be out there. so the question is, on top of all those things that you just talked about is what is the impact on the middle class? so the question the president is asking is why don't we take a step back, let's fix this in a kind of balanced way the president has proposed and the senate democrats have proposed with a reasonable amount of spending cuts and a reasonable amount of revenue raisers so that we can get this thing done and move on to the business of the country. >> but help me understand because we have a budget. this is -- look at exac

world when you decide chopping down the government and hurting the economy is the smart move. but bring it all down is now the hard right battle cry. slash spending, short the pentagon. crew up traffic control whatever raises the noise level, bashes the democrats and lowers hope. is this the tea party dream? is this john boehner's version of feeding time at the zoo, giving the crazies what they want so they will sit in their seats and behave? is this final payment to insanity the last vestige of what calm republicanism is ready to cough up? but how else can you explain the readiness of the gop leadership to let this fraken stein's monster, it doomsday machine, this sequestration go all out berserk? how else can we understand the party of lincoln doing such economic damage to the republic, such damage and moral to the people. democrat ed rendell and republican michael steele. gentlemen, i want to start with you, michael, because i know you will disagree with me and that's what this is about. i read a lot of good reporting today, not analysis, but good reporting from your side of the aisl

of the rich. the problem is, whenever he tries to squeeze more money out of the economy, he is slowing it down. we slowed down in the fourth quarter, and it's not because government spending is going down. government spending is still going at pace and we have plenty of government spending and in fact spent more the fourth quarter last year than the third quarter and spent more than the previous year and never had a real cut in spending in recent history. so i think he's just flat-out wrong. >> chris: but, as a matter -- whether right or wrong, and, you know, it doesn't have anything to do with -- as a matter of practical politics isn't the president putting the republican party in the same spot he successfully put you in during the campaign, he's defending the middle class and you guys are protecting tax breaks for the wealthy? >> right and that is empty and false rhetoric and is our job to explain to the american people, big government doesn't help the poor. big government creates massive debt which causes your prices to rise. your gas price going up, if you make $20,000 a year, and have two

that says great. let's have sequestration. let's cut $85 billion out of the economy. let's remove hope from the country. i doubt that you read that it said take hope out of the country and ruin the economy. but i get your point. what i find interesting in your argument, chris, is that you seem to overlook the fact that you have just as many democrats out there screaming the same thing on the left. starti ining howard deem. also, the whole idea of sequestration emanated -- >> what office does howard dean own? >> i'm just saying. you're pointing and say ing say >> it pushes both of these folks -- >> i'm sosh ri. i just want to check your facts. what democrats holding office in the congress want to see sequestration. >> the ones who voted for it. starting with them. you mean this whole thing got passed just on republican votes? >> it was called kicking the can -- >> are you kidding? >> i'm going to ask you again, do you believe right now there are any democrats in the house or senate who want to see sequestration? >> yes. >> name one. >> there have been folks on the record, chris. i can't name
. >> will it get done before the economy starts to feel the impact before thousands of people lose their jobs? >> it absolutely should. that would be the responsible thing to do. >> congressman joaquin castro, come back again, it's good to see you. >> i will. >> i want to play a part of what president obama said yesterday about the sequester. take say listen. >> border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks. >> the new york times did reporting and found that those things obviously may happen eventually, but march 1st is not going to be some date when all of a sudden everything happens. and they actually think many members of congress have more time to play with. how is that perception playing in to the sense of urgency on capitol hill? >> if the president isn't able to rally the public and build public opinion that this is a bad thing, it's going to be -- i think the public has been told the sky is falling a lot by this congress.
's lead. republicans trying to tank the economy again. today president obama called out the gop for refusing to stop catastrophic budget cuts due to hit next friday. cuts that could derail our entire economy. these cuts were never supposed to have happened. they were designed to be so awful that even republicans would see the light in compromise on a budget deal before they could take effect. but the gop refused. >> these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> people will lose their jobs. these cuts will effect huge parts of the economy. and cripple essential government services that millions of people rely on. >> emergency responders like the ones who are here today, their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic con

people have been coming from mexico. and part of that is the bad economy in the u.s. there's just fewer jobs. part of that is a good economy in mexico. part of it's our enforcement. and of course, drug cartels and the drug war in mexico have played a huge role. >> but james, republicans are going to have to talk about border security, border security, border security to sell the other part of this. we saw john mccain and jeff flake, the two senators from arizona, having to sort of go back and forth and back and forth and slowly move their constituents along. and the way they do that is by talking tough on the border. >> yes. and this is politics playing out. right after the election, even sean hannity said well, maybe i'm for some kind of a border thing. the people in the republican party voting in these republican primaries, they're not sold on this. and i think senator mccain found that when he went back to arizona. it's going to happen time and time again. and they do have to bring them along. >> it's going to be tough in louisiana, too, isn't it? >> very. >> mary landrieu. is mary,
, even though republicans themselves admit those cuts would hurt our economy and endanger our national security. take a listen. >> you have really been strongly saying that we've got to overt where this is going. what can listeners around the country do to deal with this pending crisis. we're looking at eight days from now a major problem if we can't turn it around. >> so basically, what's happened is yeah, the republicans, back in 2011, threatened to default on the government paying its bills, unless we instituted a deficit reduction plan of $1.2 trillion. and what the deal was, the cuts were going to be so harmful, democrats and republicans would come together to find a more sensible way to reduce the debt with tax revenue and spending cuts. obviously, congress has not been able to make such progress. the republicans have said they don't want to do anymore revenue, even if it's just a matter of closing tax loopholes for some of the wealth yesz americans and well-connected corporations in the country. and so the danger is is that this will weaken the recovery. we'll see hundreds of th
get breaks. homosexual couples do not. it costs the economy because money that's going into extra taxes, into these other expenses could be going into the economy to benefit everybody. >> suze, i know you did a special on this on cnbc last summer, and kind of big head scratcher out of this was that gay and lesbian couples pay more in this country to be treated unequally. >> so does that make any sense? it doesn't make any sense anymore. listen, we are 2013, and the time has come now that doma is ended, that everybody is treated equal. there should be no financial inequalities anywhere. there should be no emotional inequalities. as the governor will tell you, he not only considers this a civil rights issue, but it also is a financial issue as well. this is the time now starting in march when we're going to hear these arguments starting in the supreme court that hopefully we can get everybody on board to understand that everybody financially in my opinion is getting hurt by this. not just gay couples. >> governor, i want to give you the last word, and you talked about how the econom
're not necessary. they'll hurt our economy. they'll raise the unemployment rate. and the reason is because congress has not been able to compromise on a deficit reduction package that's more sensible. >> yesterday the president insisted sudden across-the-board spending cuts would be unnecessary and damaging and he made sure that first responders were there to punctuate the message. let's watch and listen. >> border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go. air traffic controllers and airport security will see cutbacks, which means more delays at airports across the country. thousands of teachers and educators will be laid off. >> and keeping up the drum beat, house minority leader nancy pelosi will hold hearings on how middle class families could be hurt by the spending cuts that could kick in march 1st. joining me is u.s. congressman adam shiff of california. i was so impressed by the way you explained all of this this morning on msnbc. i'd like you to do it again. your take on what this fight is ab
the republicans will allow the sequestration into effect. >> they're not necessary. they'll hurt our economy, they'll raise the unemployment rate, and the reason is because congress has in the been able to compromise on a deficit reduction package that's more sensible. ♪ >>> we start with the president who today reached out to republican leaders in congress with just eight days to go before tens of millions of dollars in brutal budget cuts will take effect. and we can only hope that for the sake of the country, republicans have started to listen. because polls out today show that the american people certainly favor the president's approach to the so-called sequester on march 1st. but they find the republican position about as popular as karl rove at a tea party event and that's because this budget battle sounds very familiar. and that's why the president is reaching exactly the same message on these cuts that he campaigned on last year. >> they're not necessary. they'll hurt our economy. they'll raise the unemployment rate, and the reason is because congress has not been able to compromise on a
. this is "the bill press show." one week, one week to go before the sequester kicks in and this economy goes into a tailspin. thank you, john boehner. what do you say, everybody? guess what. it's a fred. ♪ alleluia. ♪ >> damn straight friday february 22nd. ♪ alleluia. >> bill: and we love fridays here at the bill press show. ♪ alleluia. ♪ >> bill: i am sure you do as well. for some of you, a short week for you rest of us we are taking a look at the big stories of the day and giving you a chance to sound off and tell us what you think about it. 866-55-press is our toll-free number. congress comes back in session next week. they don't come back until tuesday. the sequester kicks in until friday. we will see if they can get anything done. i doubt it very very much in those three days that they are here. they like the sequester. they want it to happen. they want employees to lose their job at the pentagon. they want the economy to go in a tailspin. they want headstart and the pel grants and tsa and air traffic controllers and you name it acros
the government has already accrued. the country about and the economy again on the brink. hours before that self-imposed economic doomsday for us and the planet, the president announces that a deal has been struck. it was close and unpleasant, and it was all on purpose. that was july. by september, same year, another threatened government shutdown. this time it was the senate that had to find its way back from the edge of catastrophe, but they did it with something like 90 minutes to spare. then this past december, let's all go back to the brink. congressional republicans threatening an avalanche of tax hikes and other recession-inducing budget cuts. it's the fiscal cliff, look out! congressional republicans blew right past the new year's eve deadline and then after the sky was supposed to have fallen, a deal was made shortly thereafter to retroactively avert said disaster. remember all that? well, here we are again, back at the brink again. do brinks wear out if you use them too much? for the seventh time since winning the majority, congressional republicans are holding the government sort of h
